At a glance, the Samsung HW-K950 might seem boring. It’s a selection of black rectangles: big whoop. However, in-situ it looks very subtle and has Dolby Atmos.

In the few Dolby Atmos cinemas, you get speakers across the ceiling for more immersive surround sound. As most of us don’t want to dig holes in our own ceilings to make way for speakers, the Samsung HW-K950’s rear units have upward-firing drivers in their tops.

As such you get a sense of sound circulating above your head, one of Atmos’s main aims. The Samsung HW-K950 also sound a lot better than the other Samsung soundbars we’ve used, with much more refined treble that gives this slightly pricey soundbar combo a hifi edge.
